International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I read an interesting comment on a thread yesterday where a member said that they believed the cure/solution to ME would probably come from someone we don't expect...a cancer researcher.

    That got me thinking, in Cort's most recent article one of the researchers said that ME is most similar to cancer from a mitochondrial standpoint. I decided to do a bit of searching and came across this...

    Looks kinda familiar right? I wonder if there has already been a lot of work done out there that can help us solve ME faster.

    This also gave me quite a bit of hope.
